Jazz Greats Tuesdays on WFCF

"Jazz Greats" every Tuesday from 3-7pm Eastern on WFCF 88Five St. Augustine! From seriously ancient to just-released, from the obscure & forgotten to household names - but always tasty! There's a slight emphasis on 60's & 70's jazz (always a track from CTI) with a few tablespoons of fun & local flavor thrown in. Click here to listen online!

Also check out Palm Coast Jazz, a podcast I co-host filled with splendid original jazz from Florida musicians! My syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler" is on hiatus since I've become jazz director at WFCF.

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

Hourly themes for this week's show! 1st hour: birthday haul, more albums I got for the big day earlier this month: Carmen McRae, Hank Mobley, J.J. Johnson/Kai Winding... Hour Two: Variety! Albums/artists I don't normally get to like Danilo Perez, Bob Mintzer... Hour Three: Heavy on the 70's and then the Virgin Sacrifice! This month it's Herbie Nichols, all of side one of "Love, Gloom, Cash, Love". Never heard it before - should be fun! Hour Four: Mixed bag... celebrating Mile's birthday, Kevin Eubanks for no reason, and a mammoth jazz odyssey, albeit a bebop one, to close the show from Dizzy, Sonny & Sonny! Facebook me. Tweet me. Or just tune in online on Tuesday May 27th from 3-7pm eastern via iHeart (or 88.5FM in NE Florida). See you then! - Kendo
